These things are great. This is my second set of Asolo light hinking boots--the first saw years of constant wear, on mud/rock/snow in British Columbia. After years of poor quality light hiking boots, I am a dedicated and happy Asolo customer.
These are improved over my old pair. They are using a sticky vibram sole. The workmanship is flawless -- made in Italy instead of SE Asia sweatshop labour. The Gore-tex liner is glued at the seams. I am wearing them now inside a computer lab at school and my feet aren't sweating.
The price is right at REI outlet--52% off the retail. They mailed them to me within a week.
Oh, and they look great too!
